Valuing SEND

As part of SEND Transformation in Hertfordshire, Valuing SEND will standardise the approach to identifying needs earlier and improving outcomes for children and young people.

Key benefits

Key benefits you can expect from using the VSEND tool and approach in practice:

  • establishes a common language when describing levels of need and enables planning of how to meet needs.
  • supports the work of professionals and promotes collaboration between staff and parents.
  • supports the child - enabling tracking of progress made and supporting annual review and transition planning
  • enables settings and professionals to build a peer support network and share best practice and support strategies
  • supports settings to identify gaps and areas for further development (resource / budget allocation, training and recruitment)
